1967 Caravel floor tile

Want to get around to replacing the ugly 70's square kitchen vinyl tiles someone put in many years ago. Anyone know of a supplier or recommendation for type of tile to use. I have seen a vintage splatter paint or marble look tile before that looked pretty good. Anyone have any pics or recommendations?

I believe what you are describing is linoleum. Marmoleum is one of the more common types available. It's a natural product that is also very durable.

You may also want to look at these for more options:
Armstrong Linoleum
Armstrong Excelon Multi-Color
Armstrong Standard Excelon
Mannington Essentials
Mannington Designer Essentials
The Excelon & Essentials products are going to be more economical than the linoleums...they are both 12"x12" tiles - linoleum is available in either sheet or tile.
